Wojciech Szczesny caught smoking before competing at Euro 2020 game

Poland Goalkeeper, Wojciech Szczesny in the spotlight after he was caught carrying and smoking a cigarette before the match against Spain at Euro 2020.

In the photos circulating, Szczesny can be seen carrying a pack of cigarettes and then picking up one stick and sticking it in his mouth for him to smoke.

According to The Sun, this incident took place when he had just stepped out of the team hotel in Sopot, Poland and just before he boarded the team bus that was leaving for the airport to fly to Seville.

This is not the first time Szczesny has been caught smoking. In 2015, the Juventus goalkeeper even smoked in the dressing room while still strengthening Arsenal.

At that time, Szczesny made his manager, Arsene Wenger furious when he was seen lighting a cigarette after a poor performance when the Gunners were beaten 0-2 by Southampton.

As a result of this incident, Arsenal also sanctioned Szczesny in the form of a fine worth 20 thousand pounds.

Poland itself successfully won their first point at the Euro 2020 stage after holding to a draw with host Spain with the score of 1-1 on Saturday.

In this match, Poland had fallen behind first due to Alvaro Morata's goal. The visitors also managed to equalize thanks to Robert Lewandowski's header in the second half.

Thanks to this result, Poland is still keeping their hopes of qualifying for the knock-out round. The condition is, Szczesny's must be able to beat Sweden in the last match while waiting for the results of the other team.
